The purpose of this course is to teach couples to give each other a wonderful, relaxing massage, which also aids in their emotional intimacy. It is a light enjoyable workshop, in which both partners receive a wonderful massage from each other while they are learning. The first few hours goes over basics: how to set up the table, importance of atmosphere including smells or aromatherapy, benefits, and an introduction to vocabulary & basic techniques. Most of the day is instruction on routine, technique & posture, hands-on, giving each other a massage. There is about a half hour break between massages, to clean up & set up.
